    Angry mac/ie5/osX floats wrapping incorrectly

    Heylo.

    - http://hq.servequake.com/yo3.html

    In any browser this page renders as I want it to. Three columns, and then the studio section at the bottom.

    - Except IE5 on a mac -

    I know ie5 was a nightmare with floats.
    I know I should check for valid xhtml/css (and I did - and passed).
    I know you have to specify widths (and I did).
    I know to look for bug fixes here ( http://www.macedition.com/cb/ie5macbugs/ ).

    Yet no solution has presented itself.

    This is extrememly frustrating because I just spent 3 hours redoing this layout to find that the browser I remade it for is *still* broken! Gah!

    Any help (solutions) would be much apreciated - sympathy will serve as a temporary stop-gap though.

    Hi

    Not having a Mac (like most normal folk ) I design my mac IE code by using the hints and tips given here:

    www.positioniseverything.net

    Having said that, Mac IE is a really painful browser, especially when you kick it into standards mode (as your doctype does).
